This is a blendlab you could use to try an fool your neighborhood cigar snob. Beautiful dark wrapper. firmly packed. Incredible pre-light flavor. Good burn and flavors of Cedar & earth. Mild spice. Hint of salt. Slight sweetness at times on the finish. "Hearty" is a good buzzword here. Huge amounts of lovely smoke
In another review, somebody compared this to a Padron and, flavor-wise, that is not far off.
However the true expert (as opposed to the "snob") would note the uneven burn and need for a couple of touch-ups and a relight and the fact it burned much faster than a real premium. It did last a good while but went through the first 2/3s a lot quicker than you would get with one of the big money sticks.
In all this is a very good smoke if you don't mind paying attention to it just a bit.

My favorite blend lab cigar so far! Nice smooth draw and even burn and easy to light. Nice cedar taste. One of my favorite cigars ever.
From the second-hand smoker: one of my favorites as well! Very smooth and even. No bite at all and doesn't burn my nose. Rich woodsy smell and good lingering scents.
